BAPDA needs your help!

The Belize Assembly for Persons Living with Diverse Abilities (BAPDA) says they are underfunded and need the public’s assistance to continue fighting for the differently-abled. The organization says that the funding provided by the government is not enough to sustain its activities and support its members. The association’s president, Kenrick Theus, says current economic restraints are far more impactful on the disabled community, many of whom are not able to seek employment. He says that the association needs financial assistance to stay afloat and continue its advocacy for one of Belize’s most underserved communities. 

Theus explained that in the coming weeks, a missionary group will be coming into the country to assist members of its organization, but BAPDA does not own a vehicle to transport the team. Theus says that the organization is fighting to have access to the Ministry of Human Development’s disability bus. 

If you are willing and able to assist BADPDA, you can contact Theus at 673-0724 or visit their office in Belize City.
